Lime, Garlic and Cilantro Rice

Standard

If you like lime then you will really like this rice dish. I got this rice dish from the Pioneer Woman.

For the ingredients;

Rice

Oil or Butter

Garlic

3 Limes

Chicken Broth

Cilantro

 

Now I always use butter this is the first time I used oil. And it worked just fine. So I put some oil in the skillet with some minced garlic. You can also put in an onion at this point.

 

 

Then I stirred in 3 cups of rice and let it got lite golden brown.

 

 

Pour in 6 cups of chicken broth. The zest and juice of 2 limes. Sorry I did not have pictures of the limes.

 

 

Bring it to a boil. Then put a lid on it turn it to low and let it simmer for 20 min.

 

 

While the rice is cooking I chop the cilantro.

 

 

After it’s done I juice 1 more lime and put it in with the cilantro mix it all together and it taste delish.

We had this with Enchiladas I will be blogging that one next.

Have a great weekend!

My Friend Robin’s Chili

Standard

Well because I cook this in the crock pot. The night before I cooked the hamburger. So I would not have to do it in the morning. Because I get up at 6:00 anyways for work. I love my sleep so I did it the night before 🙂

 

So after the meat is all fried or browned I put in some taco seasoning in the meat. Now you can use a Rotisserie Chicken instead of hamburger meat. Then I put it in the refrigerator for the night. Then the next morning I put it all together 🙂

 

Now here is everything that goes in it excepted the hamburger.

 

So the next morning I heated up the hamburger in the microwave then put it in the crock pot.

 

Then I put in one can of black beans.

 

And one can of pinto beans.

 

And 2 cans of white beans.

 

I chopped up 1 bunch of green onions and put them in.

 

Now for the cilantro I put one bunch. You can put 1/2 of a bunch or to your liking. We like cilantro so to our liking we put one whole bunch 🙂

 

Now put in a can of green enchilada sauce.

 

And 1/2 of a jar of salsa verde.

 

Then I stirred the chili.

 

Then I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth.

 

Now it’s time for the spices. Cumin, Chili powder, red pepper flakes, Salt and pepper. Put all to your liking!

 

Oh yes and we can not forget the Garlic lol I put about 3 spoon fulls of minced garlic. I could have put more to my liking. So put to your liking 🙂

 

 

 

Then stir it all together put a lid on it keep it on low. Everything is already cooked we just want to marry all the flavors for a yummy chili.

 

When it’s done like 6 to 8 hours later here it is.

 

Then add some grated cheese to it any kind. This one is Monterey jack Cheese.

 

You can have it with some chips like I did or some Mexican corn bread. I did not get home til after 8 or I would have made some Mexican corn bread 🙂

 

And here is the left overs. I filled to Mason Jars. I love me some Mason Jars. This weekend I went and bought more Mason Jars 🙂

Here is the recipe:

Hamburger or Rotisserie Chicken

1 can of black beans

1 can of pinto beans

2 cans of white beans

1 can of green enchilada sauce

1/2  Jar of salsa verde

1 Bunch of green onions

1 or 1/2 of cilantro

1/2 cup of chicken broth

Cumin to your liking

Chili powder to your liking

Red pepper flakes to your liking

Salt and pepper to your liking

Garlic to your liking

Cook in crock pot all day 🙂

To have with the Chili:

Cheese

Chips

or

Mexican corn bread

Enjoy!! 🙂

Spanish Rice

Standard

My friend Danielle gave me a recipe she got from her Mom. I did a little change to it. But then I might change it because I do not have everything it calls for 🙂 Or I add more things to it so this is Danielle’s Mom’s and Mine put together!

1/2 stick of butter

1 1/2 cups of rice

Garlic

3 cups of water now you can add chicken broth powder or use already made chicken broth.

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 Small can of green chiles

2 green onions

1/2 bunch of cilantro

Here is goes!

So first I start out melting the butter then I stir in the rice and garlic. Fry it til it is light brown. Then I add the water and chicken broth powder a tbsp for each cup of water. Also at this point I put in the tomato sauce and the can of green chilies. After it comes to a boil.

I turn it to Med heat cover it and set the timer for 20 min. Then I cut up the green onions and the cilantro to add when it is done.

Here it is with everything added. But I do have to e tell you I did not use the tomato sauce because I did not have any or I would have used it. But it tasted great without it too. Oh yes and because of the chicken broth I do not add salt well I do add salt to my plate. I get in trouble when I add salt to the dish. It will taste great to me but to salty for everyone else.

I hope you liked my blog and will try the recipe. Have a great day!
